Smoother appearance and youthful skin

If you’re one of those people who crave exfoliated skin, you’ve come to the right place. At Prestige Medispa, we have the perfect solution for you.
Dermaplaning is one of the most popular techniques used throughout the world for exfoliation. A 10 gauge scalpel is used in dermaplaning to gently scrape off a layer of dead skin leaving your skin looking youthful, smooth, bright and exfoliated. The technique also helps remove facial hair and peach fuzz along with the layer of dead skin.
Interested in learning more about dermaplaning and how it can help? Read on to find out everything you need to know about dermaplaning, the results of this technique, and how our professionals at Prestige can help.

Is dermaplaning safe?

Dermaplaning is a procedure for exfoliation and is essentially safe which is why it is so popular. It should, however, be avoided by people who have acne or allergies. This is because the scalpel may irritate acne and cause problems. Since the risk of the absorption of chemicals in the blood stream is mitigated and a scalpel is used for exfoliation instead of synthetic products, this procedure is also extremely common among women who are pregnant.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Most people get intimidated by dermaplaning when they find out that a scalpel is involved and used on the face, however, you will be glad to know that the procedure is painless. After cleaning and drying your skin thoroughly, our professionals at Prestige will hold an area of your skin firmly with one hand and remove dead skin and peach fuzz using the scalpel in the other hand. The procedure doesn’t take too long and can be completed in a matter of minutes.

Are there any side effects of dermaplaning?

There are no known side effects of dermaplaning and there is no down time involved. Your skin might look red or pink and be extremely sensitive to sunlight which is why it is recommended that you don’t skip sunscreen. Your skin will immediately look smoother and more radiant, and you will notice that your skin tone and texture look more even. Since the procedure can remove all peach fuzz and dead skin, you will also notice that your skin will be more soft than you ever remembered it when you get the procedure done for the first time.
